Hi, nowadays many beauty salons are offering waxing and laser hair removal. Are these methods safe? Can laser hair removal be used near private parts?
Is removing pubic hair required before a doctor’s visit such as pap smear? Thank you.
Hello and good morning.
Thank you for your question.
Based on your question, I understand that you are worried about your problem. I will try to help you.
For your information, both ways of shaving or waxing can be used to remove hairs of the armpit and private areas. It depends on the individual as both of the techniques has its own pros and cons (shaving can be cheaper but is more difficult to do & waxing is more expensive but can easily remove all the hairs at the area). Shaving or removal of pubic hair before pap smear appointment is not necessary.
For further information, you can also contact our doctor online for further information and treatment.
I hope this answer helps you. Thank you.
